- U.S. Army Civilian Career Opportunities
San Antonio, Texas
The beautiful River Walk and a great cultural heritage beckon Army Contracting Command (ACC) job candidates to San Antonio, the seventh largest city in the U.S. The famed River Walk is lined with first-rate shops and restaurants, and the nearby Alamo pays tribute to a small group of Texans and American folk hero Davy Crockett, who fought The Battle of the Alamo in 1836.
San Antonio's old-world Spanish flair easily blends with modern American culture to make it one of the country's most attractive cities. A $3 billion investment in local military bases, particularly Fort Sam Houston, is further elevating the desirability and status of San Antonio as great destination for employment opportunities.
Fort Sam Houston, established in 1845 and moved to its present site in 1876, is known as the birthplace of military aviation and is the premier Department of Defense medical training base. Visitors enjoy coming to The Quadrangle, the oldest building on the base, to see the peacocks, deer and rabbits that roam freely in the area.
With modern libraries, beautiful parks and an emphasis on its unique cultural heritage, San Antonio is an exciting place to work and live. Meandering along the River Walk is a favorite pastime for residents and tourists alike. Great restaurants, outdoor art and other amenities are reminiscent of the great public spaces of Europe.
